Bleh, although this school has strong learning materials, the community is bad, and so are the teachers. There are better schools to choose from.


Posted July 14, 2013

My daughter is soon to be an 8th grader at Central Middle. She has had a fabulous experience. At orientation for 6th graders two years ago Dr. Baugus promised to do his best to provide a positive experience for students in the most difficult school years of their lives. He has delivered and then some. He and his staff have genuine care and concern for all students. If you are looking for a home in the area, I would high recommend this school!
